    FLIGHT-SERG. A. T. COLE




    Full Air Force honours were accorded


    Flight-Sergeant Arthur Thomas Cole at


    his funeral yesterday at the crematorium


    in the New Melbourne General Cemetery,

    arms, war medals, and the colours of the


    55th battalion, A.I.F., with which he


    served during the war. Members of the


    Air Force carried the coffin and acted as


    pall-bearers.



    The ashes of Flight-Sergeant Cole will


    be scattered over the Laverton aerodrome


    from an R.A.A.F. plane.



    Services at the chapel and at the ceme-


    tery were conducted by Flight-Lieutenant


    McWilliam. A Masonic service at the


    cemetery was conducted by Warrant


    Offlcer N. Dyer, and Flight-Officer A. D.
